The N’awlins Johnnys originated in 2009 as a blend of the rhythms of Acadiana’s cajun and zydeco music, New Orleans' contemporary funk and the early blues-based rock n’ roll that made the world take notice of the New Orleans music scene decades ago. The result is a highly-danceable sound that can be most succinctly described as “Nolabilly.” The band is Harry Barton (lead vocals, rhythm & slide guitar), John Marcey (vocals, lead guitar, harmonica), Rex Marshall (vocals, bass guitar) and Nick Hingel (vocals, drums). Since their inception the band has been steadily gigging in NOLA at a variety of venues, including Tipitina's, the Maple Leaf, the House of Blues, the Howlin’ Wolf, Banks St. Bar (where the Johnnys’ cut their teeth with a regular Monday night show for 2+ years), the Maison, the Rusty Nail and the YLC’s Wednesday at the Square concert series. The band also regularly visits Barton's home town, Lafayette, LA, letting loose at the Blue Moon Saloon, Artmosphere, the Bach Lunch concert series and the Lafayette indie-focused Geronimo Music Festival.
